Ford Fleet Management has signed a new multi-year contract with DHL Inside Track to manage the preparation and transport of leased vehicles in the UK.
Under the deal, Inside Track, DHL Supply Chain’s automotive sales and marketing services business, will manage bookings, vehicle preparation and customer delivery, as well as collection and “in-life” refurbishment. The Inside Track services company will host the logistics process almost entirely online.
Ford Fleet Management is a joint venture between Ford and ALD Automotive, established to offer medium to long term flexible leasing and fleet management for light commercial and passenger vehicles.
The operation will run out of a dedicated fleet management facility in Alconbury, Cambridgeshire, where Inside Track has the infrastructure required for Ford Fleet Management to enable a true plug and play solution, according to an Inside Track statement.
DHL is a leading global logistics company, employing 400,000 people in more than 220 countries and territories.
